The Man Comes Around: Johnny Cash in Ireland RTE One 6:30pm

Johnny Cash - the Man in Black - went around the rural dance halls of Ireland in 1963 and spent nearly a fortnight meeting enthusiastic fans.

This documentary presents a snapshot of the life of the Country singer in a time which he describes as "probably my most productive time, creatively speaking. I was ventured out, testing different waters and I really enjoyed that."

Somebody else who really enjoyed the fact that Cash came to Ireland was Enda Shortall who shares a recording made 55 years ago.
